Leslie S. Culbertson


Leslie Culbertson BA ’71 recently retired from a nearly 41-year career at Intel Corporation. She joined Intel in 1979 as an accounting manager and spent most of her career in finance, eventually working her way up to corporate vice president and director in Intel’s finance division. In the latter role, she oversaw corporate finance, including external reporting, compliance, and policy; operational finance for Intel’s business units; and global tax and trade. Culbertson writes: “I have been lucky enough to have had several other interesting roles at Intel, including spending time as the general manager for systems manufacturing, where I was responsible for Intel’s entire supply chain for board and system products, and as the vice president and director of materials and procurement, where I was responsible for intel’s worldwide direct and indirect procurement. Over the past few years, I served as a senior vice president and chief human resources officer, where I was responsible for Intel’s policies and programs related to human resources around the world and most recently as an executive vice president and general manager of Intel’s product assurance and security group, leading our response to security challenges in Intel’s product portfolio.” Prior to Intel, Culbertson worked for British Petroleum/Standard Oil in Ohio. She and her husband, Jay Culbertson, recently moved from Oregon to Nevada. Her son and daughter-in-law both serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. In retirement, the Culbertsons spend lots of time golfing, traveling, and enjoying their two grandchildren in the San Diego area.
